Encourage your child to practice for 10-15 minutes a day at home! A little bit can go a LONG way!


I have shown most of your children the FREE app called BandMate Chromatic Tuner. I HIGHLY encourage you to download this app at home and have your child use it when they are practicing. It shows the letter name of the note as well as the note position on the music staff. This is a wonderful tool for the beginners so they can know for sure if they are playing the correct sounds at home!

Download it today for FREE!!!!!!!

There are also several wonderful FREE metronome apps. A metronome helps the musician keep a steady beat while practicing at home. Type in metronome in your app store and chose one of the free ones!

Don't forget to sign up for Remind!

If you have not done so yet, please sign up for the band Remind texts. This is how I will communicate with you in case there is an emergency cancellation of morning band due to bad weather or if I am sick or one of my children is sick and I need to stay home with them. This hasn't happened yet, so cross your fingers that I won't have to do an emergency morning band cancellation. I will also remind you about concerts, changes in schedules, etc. through Remind texts. It is a free service, so please sign up!
